Primary Area: Cognitive Psychology

Secondary Area: Behavioral Neuroscience

Research and Teaching Interests:

I work on the neural mechanisms of conscious perception, attention, and metacognition, using human neuroimaging, invasive electrophysiology, and (Bayesian) computational modeling. We also apply what we learn to develop novel treatments, e.g. using deouble-blind controlled neurofeedback to reduce fear & anxiety.
